Natalie Portman in Dior Haute Couture Dress at National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne

Recently, actress Natalie Portman graced a gala at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne. For the event, the actress picked her favourite, a Dior haute couture number from the autumn-winter 2018-2019 show. The dress represents all that the fashion house stands for — the exclusive know-how and craftsmanship. The dusty pink dress is made out of silk and was folded in the Parisian workshops of Dior. The actress looked resplendent in the light pink silk pleated dress.As per the Natalie Portman website, Portman, the Dior Ambassador, along with her family was in Australia recently on a holiday. She attended the National Gallery of Victoria Gala in Melbourne during her visit.As per the website, the NGV Gala was a party dedicated to the opening of the new exhibition “Escher X nendo / Between Two Worlds” exhibition. The occasion also provided the opportunity to mingle around the St Kilda Road gallery amid the installations, big experiential zones, and exclusive VIP lounges that were set up for the night. International pop sensation Troye Sivan also performed at the gala.According to the website of National Gallery of Victoria, the gallery is running an exhibition “Designing Women,” which is on view through March 24, 2019. Spanning nearly 40 years, from 1980 to 2018, “Designing Women” highlights the ongoing role of female designers as a dynamic and critical force in shaping contemporary design culture. From fashion design, contemporary jewellery, and product design, to architecture and digital innovation, “Designing Women” draws from the NGV Collection to showcase over 50 significant works of design – across diverse creative fields – all united by their female authorship.“Designing Women” shares that female designers, often overlooked in a male dominated industry, are producing sophisticated, iconic, and thought provoking work of exceptional quality.“From modern-day trailblazers including Zaha Hadid and Neri Oxman, to local heroes such as Elliat Rich and Helen Kontouris, ‘Designing Women’ draws into focus the accelerating opportunity for women to shape the future, in a world increasingly defined by design,” the website states.Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the Dior number  https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin

Michael B. Jordan Wears Piaget Altiplano Watch at “Creed II” European Premiere

The American actor and Ambassador of the Maison, Michael B. Jordan shined on the Red Carpet of the premiere of his movie “Creed II.” He wore an iconic white gold Piaget Altiplano watch set with diamonds as well as Piaget Possession full paved rings in white gold, as per the official release.According to the release, the diamond studded watch is from Altiplano’s 60th Anniversary Collection. It has 38mm, 18K white gold case, set with 78 brilliant -cut diamonds (approx. 0.71 ct). The watch comes with a blue dial, cross in the center, and white gold appliques index. The Piaget Possession Ring, on the other hand, is made in 18K white gold set with 234 brilliant-cut diamonds.“With this Altiplano 60th Anniversary Collection, composed of two models – a 43mm automatic version and a 38mm manual version – Piaget draws on its roots, both on the design and mechanical sides. Sleek dials, thin profiles (of course), case design that evoke the early Altiplano models, use of modern but historically-related movements…Everything here reminds about the brand’s greatest times, without forgetting the needs for modernity,” states the Piaget website.Dressed in white gold, the Piaget Altiplano 60th Anniversary Automatic is a large masculine watch with a 43mm diameter, however, with a hyper-slim profile. This is all due to the presence of the Caliber 1200P, the worthy successor of the 1960 Caliber 12P, launched in 2010, after three years of research and development. This movement shares the same architecture with micro-rotor and represents the fourth generation of ultra-thin self-winding movements.According to the website, decorated with circular Geneva Stripes, perlages, anglages, and blued screws, this movement with a blackened 22k gold mass can be seen through the sapphire caseback. The dial of the Piaget Altiplano 60th Anniversary Automatic is simple and elegant, with long and thin batons, indexes, and hands, displaying the hours and minutes, and features a refined blue sun-ray pattern, with a cross in the center (something that again reminds of vintage editions). Its production is limited to 360 pieces and the watch is priced somewhere around 23,000 Euros.The other watch in the collection is Piaget Altiplano 60th Anniversary Manual that features another iconic movement of the Maison, the caliber 430P, representing the second generation of ultra-thin manual-winding movements after the 9P. Though not visible, the movement benefits from the same attentions with a fine decoration (Circular Cotes de Geneve, perlages, beveled bridges, blued screws).Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the watch   https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin
